      I have download the DAT file. it doesn't say "Failed to initialize AVEngine" again.

      But after I press the enter, it 's no response after the output the  line  of  "(408) 988-3832 EVALUATION COPY -"

      In the system moniter, I can see the "scan.exe" use 25% of the CPU ,nearly a whole core.

       

       

      the OS is WIN7 X64 SP1, this is the list of files in the dir.

          You will see no response until the scan is done, that is normal unless you also specify the verbose logging. It will also return the resources on completion.

          It is going to take as much cpu resource as it can for a single-threaded application in the process, as it's not throttled.

          The fact you see scan.exe using cpu time shows that it is certainly busy doing something.

           

          Switches are described in the product guide, free to download from the McAfee Service Portal.

            Thank you very much, I have found the log.

            i found that no matter i scan one file or 100 files, the scan will take 40s more.

            Can the scan time be shorter if i use the official license ?

              What you are really seeing is not the actual scan time, it is the time required to initialise the Engine before scanning.

              Scan time per file is generally very fast once that has occurred. This happens once per execution of scan.exe

               

              Please read support article KB68023 - VirusScan Command Line Scanner (Windows or Unix) does not start immediately.

               

              It makes no difference if you use the evaluation or licensed version.

               

               

              Please also note the the product statement section of KB52944 - Supported environments for VirusScan Command Line Scanner


              Product Statement (formerly contained in KB69097)

              VirusScan Command Line Scanner 6 integration with email or gateway scanning

               


              McAfee VirusScan software Command Line Scanner: An option to integrate McAfee anti-malware protection.

              The McAfee VCLS is one option to integrate leading McAfee anti-malware protection into server environments where other, more optimized, integrations may not apply.

              For optimal performance and protection, McAfee recommends installing and running McAfee server or gateway products that closely fit the desired integration wherever possible. These products are designed especially for gateway use cases, such as email scanning, while the VirusScan software CLS has very different design intentions and capabilities. Please contact your McAfee Sales representative to find the most appropriate solution for your needs.

               

              The VirusScan software CLS was not designed with the intent of handling the high transaction rate and concurrent file operations that are seen in a typical server environment. For those environments, McAfee recommends only the McAfee Server or Gateway family of products. If, however, you still wish to utilize the VirusScan software CLS in a server environment, McAfee recommends that this should be done only for scanning larger collections of static data wherever possible, rather than invoking it for single file scanning on a repeated basis. This will improve the overall performance experience with the VirusScan software CLS by reducing the DAT initialization overheads.
